DIY Photo Postcard

Ever wanted to make your own photo postcard? You already can. Just take any of your 4"�6" prints and write your postcard note on the back. This works really well when you make double prints, because you can save a set for your album while use the other set for postcards.

When you write on your photo postcard, remember to save some space for the '"To" and "From" addresses and the stamp. I usually divide the back into two halves. The left half for your note, the right half for addresses. Use a ruler to draw a line down the middle for guide.

You can also use the larger 5"x7" photos. Especially if yon want to write more or use bigger font. I have also successfully used 3.5"x5.5" prints as well. But these prints are usually too small.

I typically use a ball-point pen to write on the back. The ink are thicker and won't soak through the photo paper to ruin the photograph on the other side. But if you have good experiences with other types of pens, please let us know.

Do-it-yourself photo postcards are great for holidays. For example, if you have pictures from previous Halloween parties, you can send invitational postcards to entice your guest for this year's party. Your guests will be reminded of the great time they had last year.

Better still, print this attachment on the back of your 6x4" for a professional looking card.

This is such a great idea! I rarely find postcards that I like here so this will be really helpful so I could send my own (things I'd actually like!). Thank you so much! :D
